Natural Pool

Known by locals as “Conchi,” the Natural Pool is one of Aruba’s most well-known natural attractions. Located in Arikok National Park, the Natural Pool is on rugged terrain inaccessible to cars but can be reached by jeep, walking, or horseback riding.

Natural Bridge

Natural decay caused by ocean waves and strong winds wearing away at Aruba’s cliffs have created natural bridges along the coast. The famous Natural Bridge collapsed in 2005, but close to its remains sits a new formation—the Baby Natural Bridge.

San Nicolas

Journey to the eclectic city of San Nicolas—birthplace of Aruba’s Carnival. Known for its vibrant, artistic vibe and several colorful murals, it's the perfect spot for nearby kite surfing at Baby Beach or a visit to local restaurants.

arikok National Park

Taking up nearly 20% of the island, Arikok National Park is one of Aruba’s most cherished attractions. It is home to protected wildlife indeginous to Aruba, as well as a wide array of terrain for great hiking and exploring during your stay.
